Minnesota health overview

The state of Minnesota has held on to its 6th position in the overall health rankings for the last two years.

It was ranked as the best overall state in the number of deaths caused by cardiac problems and 12th in the number of cancer related deaths per 100,000 people in 2011.

Minnesota highlights

  • The percentage of people affected by diabetes in the state has increased from 4.9% to 6.7% over the last decade.

  • The rate of violent crime has fallen from 297 to 236 offenses per 100,000 people during the last 5 years.

  • The rate of smoking has fallen from 19.8% to 14.9% over the last decade, though the state still has 599,000 adult smokers.

  • The rate of preventable hospitalizations has fallen from 55.1 to 52.9 discharges per 1,000 Medicare enrollees.

  • The number of children below the age of 18 who live in poverty has fallen from 17.4% to 13.9%.

Minnesota health strengths

  • Only few of the overall population are uninsured

  • A lot of high school graduates

  • A low count of deaths caused by cardiac issues

Minnesota health challenges

  • Low public health funds per person

  • A lot of binge drinking adults

  • Regular outbreak of infectious disease

The Minnesota Department of Health, through The Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Prevention program, works in tandem with activities funded by various state and federal agencies to discourage the use of tobacco, alcohol and drugs. The program provides support via emails, phone and site visits to the affected people and families by rendering technical assistance to schools, community groups, law enforcement agencies and public health professionals.

Complete strategies have been laid down for promoting general health, which involve changing individual behavior, as well as the environment. These comprehensive approaches aim to assist groups and communities rather than one individual. This community approach aims at developing conditions which advocate and affirm healthy choices and lifestyles.

Elements encompassed by this approach include discouraging the use of alcohol, treating alcohol addiction, financial hindrance for alcohol users, making it unavailable to underage youth and school based initiatives to discourage its use.
